In total, AEW Dynamite drew 1,140,000 viewers on Wednesday night, down 19 percent from the 1,409,000 that the premiere episode did.
NXT, meanwhile, did a four-week low of 790,000 viewers, down 11 percent from the 891,000 from last week.
Dynamite aired on both TNT and TruTV, due to a possible conflict with Turner's coverage of the Major League Baseball playoffs. Had Game 5 between the St. Louis Cardinals vs. Atlanta Braves on sister network TBS still been going after 8:37 PM EST, the Los Angeles Dodgers vs. Washington Nationals game (which began at 8:37) would have aired on TNT until the Cardinals vs. Braves game concluded.
There ended up being no issue, as the Cardinals clinched their game at roughly 8:20 PM.
TNT's broadcast did 1,018,000 viewers, while TruTV added 122,000 to the total.
NXT, meanwhile, is down 389,000 viewers from its September 18 USA Network premiere (1,179,000), a 33 percent drop over the span of three weeks.
The 2.3 million combined viewers from Week 1 of the head to head was down to 1.93 million this week.
